Sitting Still To Move Forward

I’m a big fan of using to-do lists to help me get things done and may even be a tad dependent on them, however, I recently saw this quote on one of my favourite websites which made me think about them differently:

“Life isn’t a big to-do list.” Leo Babauta (Zen Habits)

Of course, it’s a very simple idea and yet it can be a challenge to remember, as we often get so caught up in planning for tomorrow and getting things done that we don’t appreciate what we have or where we are today.

The irony I guess is that sometimes in order to move forward we need to just sit still.
